* If you meet with [[spoiler: Zeke]], he'll have a couple of Purity First members with him. One of them you can talk to apparently [[spoiler: set up the bomb meant to kill the hostages]] in the Sarif manufacturing plant.

** Though you shouldn't lean too heavily on it; depending on how he reacts and his mood, this could actually ''piss him off'' because you're being sanctimonius.. But yeah, a successful end to that dialogue is very heartwarming.

No. Because it isn't up to me. It isn't up to Darrow, Sarif, or Taggart either. Ordinary men and women will have to decide together what course mankind should take. The kind of people who, time and time again, have picked and chosen the future in highly practical ways -slowing change when it's negative, speeding it up when it's good. Can we do it again? I don't know. But I do know that I'm not about to let anyone in this station[[spoiler:, myself included,]] stand in their way.
